BREAKING NEWS: Bush picks Roberts for Chief Justice slot

The question now becomes how long Sandra Day O'Connor will remain on the Court, as there is no chance a successor for her seat will be confirmed before the term starts. Though her resignation claims not to take place until her successor is confirmed, interviews with her after Rehnquist's death showed no eagerness to remain on the Court.

Another question is whether Bush will risk naming a second conservative to the bench while Roberts' nomination is pending.

A third is how this website achieved the improbable feat of reporting this news before Howard Bashman did.
